Hillside Haven Farm is a small family farm who hand picks quality Thoroughbreds and sells them as sport horse prospects. We have many testimonials from happy clients because, instead of simply selling horses, our goal is to match-make horses and riders and produce successful long term partnerships. If you are searching for your next competition partner, we would be happy to talk about our horses with you and help in any way we can!

This young horse is an exceptional mover and has proven to be trainable, brave over fences and just a wonderful person to work with on a daily basis. I see this horse being talented enough to dostraight dressage or show jumping or combine his skill set to be an outstanding event horse. His feet are solid and has not yet been shod. Zim has lovely conformation and sizable bone.
He is priced at what I think he will be worth in the spring with a bit more training and exposure. You will have to fork over near asking price to pry him out of my hands before then.

Harlan was carefully and thoughtfully bred, raised, and raced by his racing team and was retired sound simply because he wasn't interested in the game anymore. During his races, he started to purposely let his competitors catch up before running harder. Needless to say, Harlan is a very smart dude who loves a challenge and should love the complexity and variety of being an event horse. His ground manners are impeccable and he hauls like a gentleman. It is obvious that his trainer at the track taught him to be a consummate professional. Harlan also comes with his own fan club that will continue to follow his sport horse career!
